Council managed trees are any trees in the city that are owned and managed by Cambridge City Council. We estimate we manage approximately 33,000 trees growing in our streets, many green spaces, playgrounds, closed churchyards, cemeteries, and semi-natural areas.
Trees in Cambridge are a key environmental asset and provide significant social and climate adaptation benefits. They are an integral feature of our cityscape and local ecology and provide an important local amenity for residents and visitors alike.
They do, however, need to be monitored, managed and maintained to ensure that we can continue to care for trees and the public continues to enjoy and value these assets.
